Brian Bohan reports on his day’s fishing in the 2nd round of the Sheemore Angling Association Winter League fished at Albert Lock…

Drew peg one not so bad I thought, a good start to the day. I fed 4 lines; underneath the jetty, to the right of the jetty, at 6 meters out and 12 meters. I threw in one ball to each swim. I started underneath no bite.  Tried to my right no bite. Went out to 6 meters no bite. Cast to 12 meters nothing…

And so this continued for 4 and a half hours. I tried every inch of my peg all day – nothing!

Then in the last half an hour they just turned up to save what i thought was going to be my first blank on Albert Lock. I ended up with 4 lb 7 oz and a section win.

Well done Mary Tigwell who finished first. The top 3 anglers and their catches were:

  • Mary Tigwell 11lb 15 oz
  • David Oddy 11lb 14oz
  • Pat Tigwell 10lb 9oz
